Good! ICE Busts 36 Sex Offender Criminal Aliens in Sanctuary City Reader 08/10/2017 (Thu) 14:00:57 Id: 6a9184 [Preview] No. 1341 [Reply]
Enforcement Removal Operations (ERO) officers of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency arrested 32 criminal aliens previously convicted of sex crimes in the sanctuary jurisdiction of Long Island, New York. The arrests came during Operation SOAR (Sex Offender Alien Removal), a 10-day operation that ended on August 3.

ERO officers rounded up 32 criminal aliens previously convicted of sex crimes including sexual abuse, sexual assault on young children, rape, child endangerment, and promoting sexual performance of a child. The previously convicted are reported to have illegally entered the U.S. from Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Haiti, Honduras, India, Mexico, Peru, Trinidad and Tobago, according to information obtained by Breitbart Texas from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials.

ICE officials reported a sampling of those arrested including:

A 24-year-old Salvadoran national who was arrested and charged criminally with first degree sexual abuse and sexual contact with a victim less than 11 years old. Criminal charges are still pending. The victim in this case is a 4-year-old female. He was arrested in Wyandanch, Aug. 3 and will remain in ICE custody pending removal from the United States.

A 36-year-old national of Guatemala with a prior conviction of second degree rape and endangering the welfare of a child. The victim in this case was a 13 year old female. He was sentenced to six months in jail and 10 years of probation supervision. The registered

Illegal Immigrant "DREAMer" Accused of Raping Woman in Sanctuary City Reader 08/10/2017 (Thu) 13:55:54 Id: c08c2f [Preview] No. 1340 [Reply]
An illegal alien protected and given temporary amnesty by the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program is now accused of raping a woman in a Seattle suburb with a sanctuary city policy.

Salvador Diaz-Garcia, 23, is facing second-degree assault and rape charges for an alleged brutal attack on a 19-year-old woman in Burien, Washington.

According to court documents obtained by Fox News, the woman was on a treadmill at her local gym when Garcia allegedly stood behind her and asked her questions. The woman said she asked Garcia to move. Garcia allegedly attacked the woman, breaking her jaw, nose, and ripped half of her ear off.

The woman has now been left with serious facial injuries. Just a month before the violent attack, the DREAMer, a term used to describe illegal aliens given DACA amnesty, allegedly groped the woman. The two live at the same apartment building but the woman says they have never spoken before.

Four days after the brutal attack, Garcia was arrested after surveillance footage caught him allegedly watching young girls in the gym’s swimming pool. Law enforcement say they also found the woman’s blood on his pants.


American Nazi Family Arrested In Florida Reader 08/10/2017 (Thu) 13:28:31 Id: 079b6a [Preview] No. 1339 [Reply]
Members Of ‘American Nazi Family‘ Arrested In Florida

>Law enforcement in Florida say that five self-proclaimed neo-Nazis have been arrested as a result of an ongoing investigation by police which in turn found them in possession of several illegal firearms, methamphetamine, and “Nazi propaganda material”, as defined by police.

>The Pasco County Sheriff's Office says that the five were arrested near Tampa Bay area suburb earlier this week.

Investigators> were able to obtain a search warrant for the group’s home in New Port Richey as part of a several month long undercover investigation that led to the arrests of 33 year old Alexander Nowokunski, 24 year old Gabrielle Price, 31 year old Steven Crumbley, 47 year old Melinda Zalneraitis, and 28 year old Michael Baun.

>Police say that both Alexander Nowokunski and Steven Crumbley are “known documented gang members”, with extensive criminal histories. Both suspects ran for almost 14 miles before they were captured.

>The official police reports states that that while searching the property, Deputies found a major stash of “American Nazi Family” propaganda that outlined the rules, oaths and hierarchy of the American Nazi Family.

>The Pasco County Sheriff, Chris Nocco, says that the suspects allegedly stole personal identification cards from mailboxes and then used those IDs to obtain fraudulent credit cards. The Sheriff implied that the group then likely traded the IDs and credit cards for drugs.

>During the SWAT team raid on the home which assisted in the search of the house, which Deputies called a “cesspool”, Pasco County Sheriff Chris Nocco said, “This place should’ve been condemned years ago.”


Illinois Had The Worst Personal Income Growth In The U.S. Over The Past Decade Reader 08/09/2017 (Wed) 14:33:24 Id: be566a [Preview] No. 1333 [Reply]
Illinois’ jobs growth was worse than every neighboring state, and half the neighboring state average from June 2016 to June 2017, according to a new report. Data released July 27 by the Illinois Department of Employment Security, or IDES, reveals Illinois’ jobs growth from June 2016 to June 2017 was 0.9 percent, compared with a national average of 1.5 percent.

The greater Chicago area fared far better than the rest of Illinois with 1.2 percent jobs growth, but still lagged behind the national average. The rest of the state saw just 0.2 percent jobs growth.

The new IDES release also contained data by metropolitan statistical area, or MSA. Of Illinois’ 14 MSAs, eight saw jobs growth of less than 1 percent. Only five of Illinois’ MSAs saw jobs growth higher than the national average: Springfield, Kankakee, Lake County-Kenosha County, Bloomington and Carbondale-Marion.

The Decatur MSA experienced no jobs growth over the year. Rockford and Danville each lost 200 jobs over the year, on net.

The IDES data underscore a lack of economic reforms in the budget passed by state lawmakers earlier this month, which included the largest permanent income tax hike in state history.

Take Decatur, for example. Moody’s Analytics revealed earlier this year that the former manufacturing titan was one of four Illinois metro areas where the recession recovery was at risk of “coming undone.” Researchers also included Danville on that list.

Decatur residents are in dire need of healthier incomes. Even the hope of decent jobs growth would be a vast improvement.

Instead, the tax hike will force the average Decatur resident to send $580 more each year to state government, according to the Decatur Herald & Review. That’s money that could have been spent locally at struggling small businesses, put toward college savings or spent on household essentials. Instead, it will vanish into Springfield’s sinkhole of debt.

Illinois’ sickly economy doesn’t just show itself in poor jobs numbers, but in paychecks as well. The Land of Lincoln is home to the worst personal income growth in the United States over the Great Recession era.

Monsanto Was Its Own Ghostwriter For Roundup 'Safety' Reviews Reader 08/09/2017 (Wed) 15:41:57 Id: cdebd4 [Preview] No. 1337 [Reply]
RELATED: https://archive.fo/nXGgF

Monsanto Co. started an agricultural revolution with its “Roundup Ready” seeds, genetically modified to resist the effects of its blockbuster herbicide called Roundup. That ability to kill weeds while leaving desirable crops intact helped the company turn Roundup’s active ingredient, the chemical glyphosate, into one of the world’s most-used crop chemicals. When that heavy use raised health concerns, Monsanto noted that the herbicide’s safety had repeatedly been vetted by outsiders. But now there’s new evidence that Monsanto’s claims of rigorous scientific review are suspect.

Dozens of internal Monsanto emails, released on Aug. 1 by plaintiffs’ lawyers who are suing the company, reveal how Monsanto worked with an outside consulting firm to induce the scientific journal Critical Reviews in Toxicology to publish a purported “independent” review of Roundup’s health effects that appears to be anything but. The review, published along with four subpapers in a September 2016 special supplement, was aimed at rebutting the 2015 assessment by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) that glyphosate is a probable human carcinogen. That finding by the cancer-research arm of the World Health Organization led California last month to list glyphosate as a known human carcinogen. It has also spurred more than 1,000 lawsuits in state and federal courts by plaintiffs who claim they contracted non-Hodgkin lymphoma from Roundup exposure.

Monsanto disclosed that it paid Intertek Group Plc’s consulting unit to develop the review supplement, entitled “An Independent Review of the Carcinogenic Potential of Glyphosate.” But that was the extent of Monsanto’s involvement, the main article said. “The Expert Panelists were engaged by, and acted as consultants to, Intertek, and were not directly contacted by the Monsanto Company,” according to the review’s Declaration of Interest statement. “Neither any Monsanto company employees nor any attorneys reviewed any of the Expert Panel’s manuscripts prior to submission to the journal.”

Monsanto’s internal emails tell a different story. The correspondence shows the company’s chief of regulatory science, William Heydens, and other Monsanto scientists were heavily involved in organizing, reviewing, and editing drafts submitted by the outside experts. At one point, Heydens even vetoed explicit requests by some of the panelists to tone down what one of them wrote was the review’s “inflammatory” criticisms of IARC.

“An extensive revision of the summary article is necessary,” wrote that panelist, John Acquavella, an epidemiologist at Aarhus University in Denmark, in a February 2016 email attached to his suggested edits of the draft. Alarmed, Ashley Roberts, the coordinator of the glyphosate papers for Intertek, forwarded Acquavella’s note and edits to Heydens at Monsanto, with the warning: “Please take a look at the latest from the epi(demiology) group!!!!”

Heydens reedited Acquavella’s edits, arguing in six different notes in the draft’s margin that statements Acquavella had found inflammatory were not and should not be changed, despite the author’s requests. In the published article, Heydens’s edits prevailed. In an interview, Acquavella says that he was satisfied with the review’s final tone. According to an invoice he sent Monsanto, he billed the company $20,700 for a single month’s work on the review, which took nearly a year to complete.

Deep State Caught Recruiting Retired Generals To Lead Military Coup Against Trump Reader 08/09/2017 (Wed) 15:02:43 Id: 89ccd1 [Preview] No. 1336 [Reply]
The Deep State are recruiting retired military Generals in order to spearhead a coup d’état against the Trump administration.

According to radio host Rush Limbaugh, ex-military leaders and D.C. swamp dwellers are secretly organizing a revolution against Trump.

Awdnews.com reports: During a segment covering ex-CIA head John Brennan’s statements at the Aspen Security Forum in which Brennan called upon members of the Executive Branch to effectively execute a coup if Trump fires compromised special investigator, Robert Mueller, Limbaugh offered the opinion that the D.C. establishment has abandoned virtually all rationality and respect for the democratic process due to an overwhelming hatred of the outsider President and could be prepared to take extreme measures to ensure he is removed from office.

“A ‘coup’ is moving in there and ridding the government of the guy; a coup is moving in there and taking the guy out – that’s why many coups occur with the military, you need force behind it,” prefaced Limbaugh. “I will openly state – I am just speculating using intelligence guided by experience – these people are so far gone over what’s happened here to their precious town, to their precious power base, to their precious control of things, that I wouldn’t doubt if a couple of them are making phone calls to retired generals who still get up and put the uniform on every day… and soliciting their assistance, should it even become necessary, to lead a rebellion.”

“I have no evidence of it… but clearly there is an uncontrolled rage and irrationality in the anti-Trump forces on the left.”

“I think these people are so unhinged now, that in their minds – ‘whatever it takes, man,’” he continued. “The takeaway here is that a former CIA director is essentially asking for a coup against the sitting President if the sitting President fires the special counsel – which he is entirely, constitutionally, entitled to do.”

During a panel discussion at a globalist confab last week with CNN’s Wolf Blitzer and former Director of National Intelligence, James Clapper, Brennan addressed the matter of Trump firing Mueller.

“I think it’s the obligation of some executive branch officials to refuse to carry that out,” said Brennan. “I would just hope that this is not going to be a partisan issue; that Republicans, Democrats are going to see that the future of this government is at stake and something needs to be done for the good of the future.”

“If Mueller is fired, I hope our elected reps will stand up and say enough is enough.”

Communist Bureaucrats Remove ‘Offensive’ US Flag Memorial - Patriotic Residents Put It Back Up Reader 08/09/2017 (Wed) 14:51:34 Id: 12273b [Preview] No. 1335 [Reply]
Communist 'officials' in King County, Washington, removed a memorial featuring the stars and stripes because one resident called it “offensive.” But citizens incensed over the removal flocked to the site and immediately put the display back up.

King County road crews recently removed a flag-festooned, roadside memorial erected to celebrate America’s military veterans. The display had been sitting in the same spot near Preston, Washington, for several years, residents say. But county officials say the memorial was removed after several years there because someone complained, Fox 57 reported.

A county spokesman said the memorial was finally taken down because it may have been a “distraction” for motorists, though why it was allowed to stay up for so long before being taken down was not answered.

Communist 'officials' also insisted that despite its years of being in the same location, whoever erected the memorial never got permission to put the display beside the roadway.

None of this mattered to local residents, who were incensed that the county removed the long-standing memorial.

“People were really, really upset about this,” one local resident told Fox 57.

Supporters of the memorial were also upset that a single complaint could cause the display to be removed against the will of the majority.

“One person says they don’t like it, and they take it down. I don’t understand,” a Preston resident said. “We live in the United States of America. This is our flag. Why is it offensive?”

Russian President Putin: GMOs Are Making Men Sterile Reader 08/08/2017 (Tue) 01:55:34 Id: 13df44 [Preview] No. 1303 [Reply]
President Putin has slammed “modern poisons” for destroying the average man’s health and sending sperm counts plummeting to record low levels, and warns that “unless urgent action is taken in the West, the human race is doomed.”

Sperm counts have plunged by nearly 60 per cent in just four decades among men living in Europe and the United States, according to a major review of scientific studies that suggests living in the Western world is causing serious damage to men’s health.

Pesticides, hormone-disrupting chemicals, and GMOs have all been suggested as possible reasons behind the dramatic decline in male sperm count levels and Putin told a Kremlin tour group that “urgent action” must be taken immediately.

“I don’t know what I have to do to get through to people. Can you see where this is headed? Where will we be in a few decades if this type of decline is not arrested? You don’t have to be a mathematics genius to figure it out,” Putin said.

“Unless urgent action is taken in the West, the human race is doomed. A young man born today in America will be completely sterilized by the time he is 40.”

It’s not the first time Putin has spoken out about the danger of GMOs and other “modern poisons” that are now part of daily life for most people in the West. In January 2016 he issued orders that his people must be protected from GMO “so-called food” and Western pharmaceuticals “at all costs.”

According to a Security Council (SCRF) report, Putin said the next stage of human evolution is currently in “grave risk” and that Western and global powers are “intentionally decelerating the process for their personal gain.”

“We as a species have the choice to continue to develop our bodies and brains in a healthy upward trajectory, or we can follow the Western example of recent decades and intentionally poison our population with genetically altered food, pharmaceuticals, vaccinations, and fast food that should be classified as a dangerous, addictive drug.”

“We must fight this. A physically and intellectually disabled population is not in our interests,” the report states.

No proof. It's a naturalism fallacy.
Genetic modification is a too general term. You can edit the genes to make a plant grow faster as you can edit it too make it grow less. Each modification will have an effect. You need to define what modification and how this modification is done, and then (maybe) ban this specific gene modification, not the hole technique.
This is disinformation and ignorance at best. And, at worst, it's an naturalistic campaign based on religious principles (Russians are well known to be orthodox and don't like any modification on "God's perfect nature").
Everyone agreeing with this news: watch Soylent Green and read about Malthusianism. Also, read about what GMO really is, and not on blogs, read on academic papers from pubmed, please.

The question is can you can trust internationalist corporations like Monsanto to edit the genes in our best interests while they are also buying up stocks and merging with the Big Pharma companies? A lot of fellow Americans today fail to recognize corruption when it is so blunt and out in the open as plain as day.

I'll agree that gene editing could lead to wonderful creations, but if they were to improve our health how would increase those corporations' profits? They make much more profit by slowly poisoning us, making us sick and profiteering after investing in the medical industry. Cancer (among other disease) is big business here in America. Don't believe me? Ask anyone who has cancer and ask them about how much the chemo and drug therapy costs them and their families.

That's not the point of the thread. The argument here is about the GMO impact on health, and there's no evidence for that.

>the argument here is about the GMO impact on health

The argument here is why it isn't labeled.

Monsanto spends millions of dollars on advertising on even the smallest of local elections when legislation or initiatives come up to require labeling. It has nothing to do with GMO effects or some shit Putin said, it is about labeling GMO products in America.

Americans want to know what they are buying.
Americans have a right to know what they are buying. If a product cannot survive in a free market without hiding its origins, then it shouldn't survive. The other side's worn-out strategy is to try to pivot away from that and claim that it's about health and effects or that consumers are too dumb to know what they really want or some other non-sequitur bullshit.

If one brand of hot dog is .4% maggots and another brand is .1% maggots, consumers have a right to know. If one brand of popcorn is Roundup Ready and has been hosed down with herbicides and another brand isn't, consumers have a right to know.

EU Proposes Bank Account Freezes To Halt Bank Runs Reader 08/08/2017 (Tue) 19:08:18 Id: c02c52 [Preview] No. 1329 [Reply]
If there is a run on the bank, any bank in the EU, you better be among the first to get your money out.

Although it’s your money, the EU wants to Freeze Accounts to Prevent Runs at Failing Banks.

European Union states are considering measures which would allow them to temporarily stop people withdrawing money from their accounts to prevent bank runs, an EU document reviewed by Reuters revealed.

The move is aimed at helping rescue lenders that are deemed failing or likely to fail, but critics say it could hit confidence and might even hasten withdrawals at the first rumors of a bank being in trouble.

The proposal, which has been in the works since the beginning of this year, comes less than two months after a run on deposits at Banco Popular contributed to the collapse of the Spanish lender.

Giving supervisors the power to temporarily block bank accounts at ailing lenders is “a feasible option,” a paper prepared by the Estonian presidency of the EU said, acknowledging that member states were divided on the issue.

EU countries which already allow a moratorium on bank payouts in insolvency procedures at national level, like Germany, support the measure, officials said.

“The desire is to prevent a bank run, so that when a bank is in a critical situation it is not pushed over the edge,” a person familiar with German government’s thinking said.

The Estonian proposal was discussed by EU envoys on July 13 but no decision was made, an EU official said. Discussions were due to continue in September. Approval of EU lawmakers would be required for any final decision.

Deliberate Destabilization: An Angry, Irritated Italy Loses Patience With Macron Over Islamic 'Migrant' Invasion Reader 08/08/2017 (Tue) 19:02:17 Id: 764068 [Preview] No. 1328 [Reply]
One week after the latest Ifop poll showed that French president Macron's approval rating tumbled by 10 points in his third month, with only Jacques Chirac sliding more from his May 1995 election to July of that year according to Journal du Dimanche...

On Tuesday, Macron oversaw a meeting in Paris of the leaders of two of war-torn Libya’s rival factions to discuss a political power-sharing deal to reunite the fractured north African country.

Italy is furious that the meeting between the head of the U.N.-backed government of Prime Minister Fayez al-Sarraj - which has failed to assert authority even in the Libyan capital Tripoli - and General Khalifa Haftar - a warlord who largely controls the east of the lawless country - was not coordinated with the Italian government. As a result, Gentiloni’s ministers took the unusual step of openly criticizing the French president this week, voicing frustrations with Macron’s efforts, which they argue distract from a coordinated U.N. and European Union effort to engineer a political deal in Libya between three rival governments and dozens of militias.

“There are too many open formats in Libya, too many mediators, too many initiatives,” Italy’s foreign minister, Angelino Alfano, told the Italian newspaper La Stampa.

Alfano and other ministers have been dismissive of the progress the Elysee Palace claimed to have made in the search for a deal in Libya. According to the French government, al-Sarraj and Haftar have committed to a cease-fire as well as to a continued political dialogue in an effort to achieve national reconciliation. The Italians also believe that Macron has fallen into a trap set by General Haftar, who has refused to accept the legitimacy of Fayez al-Sarraj’s government. Italian officials complain that the Macron-brokered meeting helps to legitimize Haftar, whom they see as a warlord and a strongman-in-the-making.

Accusations of Macron's high-handedness were also echoed in France, on his approach to a range of issues, domestic and foreign, with one retired general, Vincent Desportes, accusing Macron of “juvenile authoritarianism.”

As VoA adds, Macron’s Libya diplomacy is just one irritant in increasingly tension-filled Franco-Italian relations, in which Macron has been also accused of duplicity and hypocrisy in his diplomatic conduct with Italy. In May, after meeting Gentiloni in Paris, Macron announced: “we have not listened enough to Italy’s cry for help on the migration crisis.” But Macron’s position since hasn’t changed much from Francois Hollande, his predecessor in the Elysee Palace, to the Italian government’s rising anger.

Aside from Libya, an even more pressing issue for Italy has been the ongoing pleas for burden-sharing when it comes to the country's migrant wave, pelase which have so far fallen on deaf ears among other EU nations. Meanwhile, Italy’s refugee centers and shelters have reached their capacity of 200,000. So far this year nearly 100,000 asylum seekers have crossed the Mediterranean from Libya — a 17 percent increase over the same period last year — and with months more of good weather, another 100,000 asylum seekers are likely to land at Italian ports.

Pointing the finger explicitly at Paris, Italy’s deputy foreign minister, Mario Giro, this month complained, “it doesn’t seem like France wants to help us concretely.”
